Hey guys, decided that it might be a good time this Fall/Winter to start working on our 63 unibody shortbox. I hear all you need is TTM (Time, Talent & Money). I think I may be a little short on a few of those, but here's what I got...

Thanks guys! I'd been searching a long time and found this rust free original in Southern California(Escondido) about 5 years ago. Had it trucked up to Washington and it's been in our garage and driven about once a month to keep the bias plys round lol. It's got 126k mi., the 292 Y block with 3 on tree, oil bath air cleaner and love the cross over pipe that connects the exhaust manifolds. My problem is that I want to put on bigger custom wheels/tires and lower it while keeping the original front suspension. Any good solutions?
You can have the axle dropped to attain about four inches maximum drop. Mono leafs will add another two.
That is about it.
